James "Jimmy" Broad (10 November 1891–22 August 1963) was an English footballer who played as a forward for various Football League clubs in the 1910s and 1920s, including Oldham Athletic, Stoke City and Everton.

Born in Stalybridge, Cheshire (now Greater Manchester), Broad began his football career with St Mark's (West Gorton), before moving to Stalybridge Celtic. He joined Manchester City in 1911, Manchester United in 1912, and then Oldham Athletic in 1913, without having made an appearance for either United or City. In his one season with Oldham, Broad made 15 appearances and scored five goals, but he was allowed to join Morton of Scotland in 1914. He returned to England with Millwall in 1920, scoring six goals in nine appearances before joining Stoke City in 1921.

It was at Stoke that Broad made the biggest impact, scoring 62 goals in just 108 appearances over the span of a two-year career in the Potteries. He joined Everton in 1924, via Sittingbourne, and scored eight goals in 18 games for the Toffees. In 1925, he moved to New Brighton, for whom he scored three goals in 11 matches, and then he joined Watford in 1926. After just one game for Watford, in which he scored a goal, Broad was sacked for a breach of discipline.[1] He moved into non-league football with Caernarvon Town and Taunton Town, before returning to New Brighton at the age of 38. However, he did not make any appearances for New Brighton before joining Fleetwood, after which he retired from football.
